Still quite dark. Wild aromas of living humus, brambly berries with a ferrous undertone. Still structured but showing a hint of oxidation in the finish.

Just don't understand the love for this wine. Big and powerful for a Beaujolais, but stuck me as a little sour and acidic. A years age has helped it, but I'll wait at least one more before trying again...

Orange peel, rhubarb, cranberry and watermelon Jolly Rancher. Bouncy & youthful, but on the more serious side.

Super sweet fruit on the nose, red licorice rope. Dry, jammy.

Focused and precise, with the typical high toned floral quality of this estate. Lots of tension and grip, hold.
